shine and shadow

"Were not shine and shadow blent, As the gracious Master meant?-
Let us temper our content with his own..."

James Whitcomb Riley

Wading by lily pads...creation turned upside down by the waves, stark contrast to the green surface.

The lighthouse, took too many photos...waves crashing along it's rocky shore... navigational light needed most certainly there.

Where I may sit and write some day, near this window- at that table. Cabin of my dreams, the light on that table top...truly illuminating.

Grand Lake Stream and totem. How anyone was able to carry those rocks out there and position them in the rush of that water...and photo of a nameless lake, though the body of water remains unforgettable.

A beautiful though scary looking bug...harmless. And finally- an arbor in the mist of a morning. Sigh......

I've been looking for original pictures to hang in my house. I think I just might have found my artist. Let me know how I might be able to buy some copies please. I particularly like the picture of the window with the table and chairs. Something about it... SW @ TWHC

Ahhhh yes, the window...imagine my eyes seeing it, knowing it somehow. I picture myself days to come and days of old. I'll be an old woman there, gathering wood from my own woodlot, carrying the logs into that place, making a fire to sit by, write and be right. Yep.

ah the seashore. There is just something so romantic about it. And the lighthouses give a sense of time. Mrs. T and I will be in New England later this week on a group "leaf tour." Im looking forward to it

The bug is lucky to be on top of the toes, not under!
